Well Fellow mature Seadogs, today I reach the grand old age of 80!! My last trip was in 1968. Amazingly I remember with absolute clarity the events of 60 years ago. Have trouble with what happened 3 weeks ago, I suspect I am not the only one in this regard. Many many changes. The end of Line voyages, (thanks to the Jumbo jet), The end of ships that looked like ships and the passing of a way of life that will never be repeated. Made friends that have lasted a lifetime, as this forum testifies. Developed a sense of responsibility and found unsuspected talents through force of circumstances. You never know what you can do until you have to do it. All of us did it. I salute my brother Seadogs, I miss you every one.
